AGM Automotive Batteries and what one can learn on hold

| February 11, 2017

The BMW X5 35d has been having issues starting when cold which seems likely due to a new Exide FP-AGML5/49 Edge Group L-5/49 Flat Plate AGM battery. I’ve gone great lengths to rule out almost everything other than the battery, and decided it must be a weak cell or defect in the new battery itself. […]

World War I surveillance DRONE – or pigeon photography

| February 5, 2017

Homing pigeons were outfitted with lightweight cameras in WWI with time-delayed shutters for aerial reconnaissance photography, likely the first "drones."  They were used very effective as messenger pigeons prior to wireless radio and effectively in communicating behind enemy lines in World War II. Interestingly the Swiss Army continued they military pigeons until it was disbanded […]

A little SNOW country #humor

| January 22, 2017

Really just a filler post since we were in snow country this weekend for my mother-in-laws funeral. The “more realistic than we care to admit” chart is just a bit of humor that will likely have you nodding your head no matter where you live. Winter weather reactions definitely differs depending where you are located.

Getting in the Christmas spirit. This is so very wrong —

| December 25, 2016

Christmas morning is almost here so I need to get this out of my system before getting together with Drew and my “soon to be a mom” daughter Katelyn. For the record, this is not an example of good parenting! Who doesn’t remember Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer?

Getting a straw stuck up your nose can be painful …

| December 2, 2016

I’ve heard of getting a straw stuck up your nose … but this is ridiculous.

What do you do when you mix up too much epoxy?

| October 28, 2016

Repair a shoe of course!  I’ve was frustrated with my carelessness when welding last year after burning a hole in my Keen shoes, but still wear them (albeit with a little more air conditioning than I would like). So after mixing a little more epoxy than needed for a repair, I dabbed a little bit […]

Daily Chuckle: Pi Rats of the Caribbean

| September 30, 2016

I’ve been holding this somewhat humorous mathematician napkin-art for a "fill the day" post. It takes the "Dumb Dad Joke" one step further into nerddom … but no, it is not my handiwork and I’m not sure who deserves the blame or credit!

Presidential hopeful Gov Gary Johnson gets a little tongue-tied

| September 26, 2016

Just when you thought this years presidential campaign couldn’t get any weirder … Gov Gary Johnson steps it up a notch on MSNBC. I don’t have (or want) the full context.

Lost and found: Large cat, no collar or tags.

| June 22, 2016

Saw this in my social network feed the other day … too funny not too share. Found … Large cat, cream colored, no collar or tags. Doesn’t get along well with my other cats or dogs. Needs to be the only cat in the household. Not very friendly. If this is your car, please claim […]

What are we having for dinner?

The Bill Envall segment from Dorkfish on African animals

| April 23, 2016

The other day after seeing Bill Engvall on the ABC sitcom Last Man Standing, I tried to remember his comedy bit where he used the line, "Bob, he’s a smoker."  I could remember much more so I mentioned it casually to a friend — a few days later he text me the segment from his […]

A photo that is just begging for a caption

| April 19, 2016

I’m sure there are some naturalists who will point out the difference between alligators and crocodiles … but the rest can work with the "crocs" thing.

Elections are serious … but we can still have a little fun

Where there is more wind aloft, sail like these ladies!

| February 2, 2016

I really wanted to title this “blonds have more fun” but unfortunately the members of this fine crew are brunette. On the other hand, the skipper may be detecting a little more wind aloft??? 🙂

A little earbud knot tying humor

| December 20, 2015

This well done graphic has probably be around for a while since the Apple earbud looks to be the older type … but I thought the knot tying humor was pretty funny.

Time Warner Cable commercial — “Back and Forth”

| October 25, 2015

It is interesting how certain commercials are bring smiles to our faces … but we always seem to stumble on a commercial that sticks in our heads. This one from Time Warner Cable has Brenda and me doing  back and forth “yes, welcome” to each other … just as one from Geico did in 2012. It’s […]

App users help @Periscopeco with their Mad Libs update

| June 20, 2015

Users had some fun with a few of the Twitter Periscope programmers this past week in participating in their Mad Libs update copy for the App Store. In keeping with geeky humor (see the “Peter” joke), the jovial staff decided to include 900 of their users in the live update of Periscope Version 1.1.1. Each of […]

Fire and coffee–do we need a psychiatrist or an intervention?

| May 9, 2015

Those who know my wife’s family heritage, KNOW she has the firebug in her DNA. Spring clean up around the yard this year is no exception. Once again … the bonfire is blazing (click for larger image). While Brenda has her issues with fire, I have mine with coffee. I know I’m getting extreme when […]

Does our Zodiac inflatable really look like a manatee?

The Tale of Two Puppets

Just filling space today … but thought the resemblance between Jeff Dunham's “dummy” Walter and President Obama's Joe was amazing. (made me chuckle, no offense intented) 🙂 ___ –

Stop the Spocking says the Canadian Central Bank

| March 8, 2015

Canada’s central bank is urging citizens to stop defacing their $5 notes in a tribute to deceased actor Leonard Nimoy (3/26/1931-2/27/2015). In a trend dubbed “Spocking,” Canadians have taken to drawing pointy ears and tiled brows on top of Canada’s seventh prime minister, Sir. Wilfrid Laurier, to make him look like Mr. Spock, the half-Vulcan, […]

Will the toy quadcopter be used in the next wave of terrorism

| January 26, 2015

It’s really not a laughing matter, but a drone flying around the White House is unfortunately a sign of the times. Technology has advanced to the point that a person who wants a quadcopter or UAV can probably buy/build and fly them … some more successfully than others, sorry Vice President Biden. WASHINGTON –  A […]

Shake it Off video starts the 2015 year with millions of views

| January 19, 2015

One can’t help but smile watching the Dover Delaware Police cam video with one of their officers lip syncing to “Shake it Off” by Taylor Swift. That said, one of my videos infringed on an Oprah Winfrey segment years ago and YouTube takes down my account and deletes over 100 of my personal videos spanning […]

Air travel and the annoyances of flying cattle class

| December 15, 2014

Expedia posted a lighthearted polling of what annoys airline passengers which got me thinking about what I notice and where I may offend. I already do my best to be overly attentive to most of these annoyances, but probably would rank “The Aromatic Passenger” as #1 followed by the “Back Seat Grabber” as my #2 […]

The Ebola Song–humor from the IMUS in the morning show

| October 22, 2014

It is probably in bad taste to be chuckling at anything related to Ebola … but neither my wife or I have been able to get the Imus show’s Comedian Rob Bartlett‘s ‘The Ebola Song’ (audio mp3) out of our heads. I’m hoping you’ll don’t have the same problem every time you hear the word […]

Whoops! The first iPhone6 in Perth, Australia

Apple’s much anticipated iPhone6 went on sale today as folks in line finally get a chance to own a blemish and scratch free smartphone their own … and here’s what happened to Jack, the first to walk out of the Apple store in Perth, Australia with one.

Monkeying with animated GIFs … pun intended

Playing around with a couple video clips where a monkey and a kangaroo punch. I turned them into animated GIFs and then HTML5 using GFYCAT.com — just techie fun.

There’s a long term solution to every problem

| March 16, 2014

Saw this cute story about a problem and laughed at the creative solution. According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington recently was faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they […]
